Variation 3, starting to break free

Third variation on same photo reference. 
Rendering a perfect likeness is not my objective.
Moving from painting to art/ finding light and shadow/keeping the emotion involved....
that's more like it.
The emotion that inspired me in the photo is present.  I'm pleased.
More to come.

Down Valley at Dusk

The sun is dropping behind the trees. Color is becoming indiscernible. Soon the deer whose tracks are seen in the snow will return to find food at the edge of the field and bed down in the grasses under  the tree line, where they spend each night. Calm descends on a snowy evening.
